18:30- 19:00- Se7en Deadly Deployment Sins by Philipp Krenn
Do you have something to confess? Or are you still in denial — knowing that you're doing something wrong, but you cannot say for sure what it is?
In this talk, we'll go through our deployment sins and how to avoid them:
* Gluttony: Adding all the dependencies — both in size and number.
* Greed: Yes, I want to use the biggest and slowest application server possible.
* Sloth: Continuous Deployment or Delivery — who would need that?!
* Lust: Of course I'm using containers, microservices, and every latest trend for every project!
* Pride: Once something is in production it's purely an ops problem.
* Envy: Why should I rely on an external library, when I can lovingly handcraft it all myself?
* Wrath: Logging and monitoring are for the faint of heart!

Slack is a messaging platform for teams that brings all communication together, creating a single unified archive accessible through powerful search.
This presentation is going to give you an overview about how we run database systems at Slack, the infrastructure and scalability challenges that we are facing and what's the plan to solve them.

19:50 - 20:20 - Archetype of an SRE Superhero; A DevOps Journey by Jason Grimes

Concur has recently gone through this digital transformation of the business from a monolith application with 2 major releases per year to each 700+ developers who are committed to owning their own code in Production and owning performance from an end-to-end; giving product teams the ownership from design through production release and operations. No we have a team of 6 SREs to influence the greater orgs practices to more than 1000 developers.

As an aspiring SRE Superhero we subscribe to the idea that we are here to engineer our way out of this technical debt, AWS availability zone crisis, or even during natural disasters we stand ready as the superheroes of today’s modern infrastructure. We are here to put the right talent, practices, strategies, change control and ultimately global teamwork together to run todays high availability production operations business environment.

Group attendees would walk away with knowing:

*How to build an SRE Superhero; that scales with new technologies

*Specific characteristics we think an SRE Team needs to possess to be successful in todays ever changing orgs

*How to recruit in this new paradigm of SRE/DEVOPS (what are the common backgrounds and career paths)

*How to #LevelUp during conferences, Meetups and Always Be Learning
